Twisted Sister Arts
I am a self taught artist, who works full time from her studio in Oregon City, Oregon. I quit my day job a year ago, moved 2200 miles west back to Oregon, and set my studio up here. I've been on Etsy 4 years, and quitting my day job was a big leap of faith that it would work. It truly has, and it's a joy to create one of a kind pieces daily. I work with copper core wire in 8 colors, and Sterling Silver.
I specialize working with Eyes as my main focus, but receive an occasional serious work on commission. I sell 95% of my work on line, and have a local gallery and Williams College of Art, as my other outlets for my work.
I paint my eyes, and often I will get requests for special colors that I try to fill. When someone wishes for a purple eye ring, I will paint up to 5 eyes, for them to choose from, and I send my pictures to them via the web. It's a very special process and my secret how it's done. I have sizes of glass from 14mm to 32mm, and can get smaller and larger, with time for a special order.
My work travels all over the globe, and I ship daily, priority mail. My best ideas come from my customers and about 50% of my work is now done by request and on commission.
